PS4 Games like Horizon Zero Dawn/Borderlands?

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

By the title I mean a game that has leveling mechanics with skill trees and weapons that can be upgraded. A story mode and side missions are also appreciated along with aiming such as the bow from Horizon or guns from Borderlands. Diablo is close but that's a point and click game and I already own Diablo 3.

 

Even if it's a game only on PC that would still be kind of helpful.

 

Any ideas would be very helpful. Thanks again!

Spider-Man or God of War and Infamous (if possible get First Light and Second Son in a bundle, if not: Second Son).

I totally disagree.

Although you have to upgrade your gear (=grind), it is in the end an Online MMORPGish game that doesn't run too well on PS4 (yes, tried it was 4free in PSN a couple of months ago and PC version is to be preferred)...

And in the end its rather grindy...


I'm in it myself right now... 

 

So I'd rather vote for another Sony Game like Spider-Man (Kinda), God of War and Infamous (really RPGish)...

Well, kinda but not really...

You can actually upgrade your weapons a bit.


It has Leveling Mechanics though, although rather grindy. Like doing fistfights or hunting to increase Health, running to increase Stamina. So there kinda is a leveling thingy...

 

And if you continue the story, you can get better weapons like the Borchardt C93 or Mauser C96 (personally I prefer the Borchardt wich the predecessor to the Luger, because of the magazines -> faster reload)...

 

And to make it worse: THe C96 is actually more expensive than the Borchardt...

Thanks for the help! I already watched a playthrough of Second Son at release but I will definitely look into God of War. The Witcher 3 seems to be a close second with Nier: Automota being my third choice.

The Witcher 3 was actually my first choice before someone brought up God of War. I'm definitely gonna try and get both.

I can see that, they have much in common.

Though if Far Cry, I'd sugest 4 as I didn't like the gameplay of 5 as much as 4.

there is some leveling, health stamina dead eye, as well as the horse stamina health and bond. you can consume items to fortify your stats 

 

weapons can be upgraded, it doesn't add much tho. most of it is cosmetic

I haven't played 5, but I really enjoyed Far Cry 4. It was one of the first games I played when I built my first gaming PC in years back in 2014 since it came with my gpu, and I was extremely impressed by it. I liked it a lot more than Far Cry 3, though I definitely enjoyed that game too.

Be happy about it...

 

Because you have to kill a lot of woman, you have like 2 Guns  -> AR-15 and maybe the AK.

And that's about it....

And maybe another 2 or 3 LMG or .50 cal "Sniper" Rifles.

but I really enjoyed Far Cry 4.

Me too.

IMO the best one of the series.

Great map, great selection of guns (but why is the Famas always a 3 burst rifle??)

I agree with that statement.

 

Far Cry 5 is a big step back as it gets rid of the need for hunting and the crafting, wich was one of the most interesting mechanics in Far Cry. Without Crafting it ain't Far Cry....

Haven't really played 2 though. Well, for more than like 5min it is...
